Our Pledge to Residents & Community

This year, our Team gathered to sign a pledge in Caring and Care. Thank you Arlene, Recreation Team, for creation of pledge and the stunning mini paper flowers. There are certainly all kinds of ‘patience’- and Arlene’s paper flowers are a good example!  We strive in collaboration to create a community that ensures that residents are most comfortable and happy.

 

Reflections

Arlene is amazing!

When we ask some of the members of our caring team, Who Is Guildford Seniors Village?

 

Therapeutic Recreation says         “Quality of Life Specialists”

Clinical Care Team says                “Compassionate Care”

Maintenance Manager says          “Anything for the Resident”

Community Relations says           “Passion for Inspired Living”

General Manager says                   “We Make it Happen”

 

The answers are not only very true, but very telling!

 

Dining Experiences are Resident’s Choice

Our home cooked menu within four Neighborhood Dining Rooms, offers variety and Resident’s Choice favourites.  The final touches are being added to upcoming Winter Menu…stay tuned!

#ThisIsRecreation

We shine a light on the domains of purpose and meaning we strive to create: social, emotional, physical, intellectual and spiritual.

Each monthly Recreation Calendar is inspired by current resident interests. Our monthly Resident Council embraces resident opinions, preferences and wishes, an excellent way to focus on solutions and gain wisdom and feedback.
